I am a stained glass mosaic artist with more than 25 years working with this medium. I have had one woman shows, group shows and am currently in 3 galleries here in New Mexico. I have been teaching the art of stained glass mosaic for 10 years with groups ranging from 10 to 75 years old with many different abilities. I have the ability to adapt the tools and techniques to different abilities and skills. Many people have returned for follow up classes because they enjoy working with glass and the different techniques that can be used.
